Hauser
** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, March 23 at 2029, Bob Biermann musing, so must be `Your Weekend Show` instead of RAE in Italian --- aha, the WRMI sked grid
http://www.tinyurl.com/WRMIfqs
has now deleted the RAE German at 19 & Italian at 20 on 9395, showing both it and 9455 as System G `Oldies` at 18-20, and more Oldies on 9395 only at 20-22 M-F, while 9455 switches to System D at 20-22. This `YWS` is another secret opt-out from `Oldies` never shown on the schedules. Meanwhile from 2030, 9455 seeming // JBA 7780 in Italian `Studio DX`. The program grid still shows RAE German & Italian, M-F 21-23 on 11580 only, which has really been off the air since the first week of January, and not coming back until Maybe.

RAE relays in Portuguese, Spanish, French, English are still on the sked and heard recently; Chinese and Japanese allegedly at 08-10 on 9455 I continue to sleep thru (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15120, March 23 at 0022, CRI Spanish, with warbling squeals peaking about 2.5 kHz each side; // 5990 unsquealish but undermodulated. Something`s always wrong at RadioCuba (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MADAGASCAR. 17570, March 23 at 2005, S9-S8 YL in tonal African language, occasional hints of French influence; 2007 choral music, 2008 ID in passing as Radio Mondiale Adventiste. On almost dead band it really stands out along with 17640 African Pathways Radio, from the other MAD site. As in my previous log Feb 25, language listed as Moore spoken in Burkina Faso. But Aoki/NDXC labels it Mossi(Moore). HFCC A-18 shows this only Mos language broadcast anywhere will then move to 9770, and to site from FRANCE (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ROMANIA. 9610, March 23 at 2025, operatic solo, soon Spanish announcement mentioning ``rumano``, so obviously RRI as scheduled 20-21 via Tsiganeshti.

5980, March 24 at 0024, I happen to hear the same music, i.e. the next RRI Spanish broadcast via Galbeni. Both of these have only one more day before the skedshuffle, or maybe zero days for 5980 depending on time of day UT March 25 they enact A-18 usage. I can hardly wait to again have a shot at Radio Chaski now until 0000v* (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U K. 9545, March 23 at 2027, very poor talk at S4, gone at 2031 recheck. Could it be Solomon Islands? HFCC registers SIBC as 20-07 UT, but until 2030 Fridays only in both seasons is also BBC Hausa via Woofferton, extended from -2000 otherdays (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. WORLD OF RADIO 1922 monitoring: confirmed Friday March 23 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.273v-CUSB, good S9. Next:

(Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 11786 approx., March 23 at 2011, during routine check for Anguilla 11775 or maybe Brasil 11780, neither of which is on now, I find an S1-S3 extremely distorted spurblob; switching to FM mode I can tell it`s speaking Spanish, somewhat readable. It`s not RHC, and at this hour the only significant SS on band is 12050, WEWN --- sure enough, I make a match with the S9+10 fundamental which itself sounds OK. Then to search the band for more such spurs, and there they are, all quite broad and hard to pinpoint, some readable in FM mode, further ones not.

12116 at S8-S9, 12189-12192 at S5-S6, 12250-12247, 12390 & 12450 JBA; downward: 11984 at S9+15 and good in FM; 11918 almost as good but some noise; by now it`s 2021: 11852 at S3, 11721 at S1, 11664 JBA.

At 386 kHz below 12050, 11664 implies the average separation would be 64.3 kHz, out to the sixth order. 12450 at +400 kHz would divide out to 66.7 kHz each. But not all of them fit into this pattern. They could be fluxuating as I go along, besides being so broad each in FM.

This transmitter has gone out of whack before; it may always be to some extent, but extra strong fundamental signal today exacerbates them. Clearly, WEWN has some cleaning up to do.

5970, the night Spanish frequency, is clean around 0030 March 24. I understand that two separate transmitters are used for day and night services, even tho at any one time, only one English and one Spanish are on air.

And this is soon to diminish, if HFCC FCC A-18 registrations are complete, only 5 entries. WRTH reminds us they have 4 x 500 kW transmitters. They`ve been run with 250 (or 300?) for years now, but note that Spanish allegedly uses only 100, as in both A-18 and B-17. One could easily have believed 250 today, especially with the azimuths aimed away from us, yet supplying us with all those spurs.
CIRAF
5970 00-14 11,15 Spanish 160 100
12050 14-24 11,15 Spanish 155 100

11520 00-09 46,47 English 85 250
9470 09-13 43,44 English 335 250
15610 19-24 46,47 English 85 250

English no longer 21 hours a day, let alone 24, but only 14. 9470 was also scheduled in B-17 but never used, so there is no reason to expect it to be active in A-18, but we shall soon hear if so. And March 24 should be the last day for morning English on 12065 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 9265, March 23 at 2030, WINB gospel huxter in English, with big ripple on carrier, obvious with BFO, but sounds OK in AM; still a sign of a very sick transmitter (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 6905-LSB, March 23 at 2033, Spanish 2-way, good S9 signals rather than any North American pirates. One has good modulation, the slightly weaker contact, rough. Not clear from which side of border, but they are discussing SLPotosÃ, Huasteca, Ciudad Valle, products such as mango, caÃa, aluminio; QSL? So have a ham radio background (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9475, March 23 at 2028, algo weak S3 instead of WTWW-1; trouble is, nothing else is scheduled. Could be few-watt exciter only, as neighbor 9350 WWCR inblasts at S9+45! (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

This report dispatched at 0228 UT March 24

Glenn Hauser logs March 23, 2018  View Printable Version 
Friday, March 23 2018

Hauser
** AUSTRALIA [and non]. 5055, March 23 at 1231, JBA carrier presumed 4KZ; nothing on 5045 from OzyRadio, but a JBA carrier on 4835, presumably still Sikkim (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 15370, March 23 at 1358 check, RHC is still OK with no spur constellation. None of those have been heard since March 15 on almost daily chex, so fixed for good? Don`t count on it. Something or another is always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** KIRITIMATI. 846, March 23 at 0555, JBA carrier from presumed R. Kiribati, not Europe. See also UNIDENTIFIEDs for TA carrier search which ensued and later, TP (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** MEXICO [and non]. 710, March 23 at 1217, preacher in Low German with American accent: this really stands out on the MW band vs all the Vietnamese and Spanish, and of course it`s XEDP, Ciudad CuauhtÃmoc, Chihuahua, which emits this guy every morning. I see that WRTH 2018 does not mention this distinctive aspect of La Ranchera de CuauhtÃmoc.

XEDP has no problem overhopping 10 kW KGNC Amarillo whose day and night patterns favor WSW to S to ESE; KGNC, KCMO and KNUS mutually protect each other. Once skywave is out, KGNC does make it to here marginally on groundwave at 380 km, better/closer than KCMO (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 5980, March 23 at 1236, Radio Marti atop jamming as a numbers station --- lottery, that is --- can dentro-cubanos really participate? 1237 on to weather forecast for the island.

Am checking here in anticipation of RNZI`s A-18 move from 7390 starting at 1259. Sure hope the Cuban jammers turn off as quickly as Greenville by 1300*. Oh, A-18 shows Martà will then be stopping 5980 at 1000*, so should not be a problem. More of a problem for us will be earlying fadeouts of 50m as we get into summer. Enjoy morning reception while we can. Judging from previous season, our best window should be 0459-0658 on 11725 (and if awake, 0659-1058 on 7425).

7390, March 23 at 1325, RNZI is still good here with interview about exploding populations of crocodiles in Australia. A hunter describes how he extracts human remains after consumption by then executed crox. One more day to go on this frequency (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** NEW ZEALAND [and non]. 6224-USB, March 23 at 1240, marine weather by synth male voice, clearly enunciated but lacking human expressiveness; emphasis seems on wind speeds and direxions. EiBi shows it`s ZLM, Taupo Maritime Radio, schedule of which is 32-minute transmissions all starting at :03 or :33 past the hours, why? 0033, 0303, 0333 [overlapping?], 0433, 0703, 0803, 0903, 1233, 1503, 1533 [overlapping?], 1633, 1903, 2003, 2103, 2303.

6230-USB, March 23 at 1240, marine weather only slightly weaker than ZLM 6224, sounds like same synth male voice with similar info, presumably concerning western Australia since it`s VMW, Wiluna. In this case transmission is continuous per EiBi, 1000-2300 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, March 23 at 0548, WTWW-2 is still on but open carrier/dead air except for some hum. By 1243 is modulating C&W music; as always flanked by much weaker unmodulated spur carriers on 5072.1 and 5097.9 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Atlantic JBA MW carrier search, March 23 at 0556+: 531(2), 549, 567, 612, 693(2), 1044, 1125, 1314, 1512, 1539, 1575. Just after had 846 from Kiritimati, q.v. (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. Trans-Pacific JBA MW carrier search, March 23 at 1159: started as usual on 774, to find it on the DX-398 from WSW, probably 3LO Melbourne rather than NW, NHK Japan.

Then switch to R75 with E-W longwire, March 23 from 1202: 594, 612, 774, 828, 846*, 882, 1035, 1116, 1503.

*846 was stronger, so back to DX-398 to try to DF it: seems WSW rather than W, and Kiritimati supposedly goes off around 1000. But the only DUs are three eastern Aussies at 2.5/5/10 kW, and an NZer at 2 kW; fluke? 846 soon fades down. At 1213, 1098 from west, i.e. Marshalls. Enid sunrise today: 1231 UT (Glenn Hauser, oK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9690, March 23 at 0546, open carrier heard all evening is still going, but now peaking S4 at best. By 0600 per EiBi it could be Nigeria in Hausa, except 9690 is rarely on besides 7255- (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** ARGENTINA [non]. 9395, March 22 at 1937, WRMI Oldies ID, poor, weaker than // 9455. So still no RAE German relay.

9395 // stronger 9455, UT Fri Mar 23 at 0103, RAE English via WRMI is underway, lead-in about World Cup, music bed and then headlines starting with Peruvian presidential resignation. So contrary to WRMI skedgrid implication, RAE is continuing on both frequencies for rest of week. (Meanwhile VORW occupies 7780 // 5850 this UT hourday) (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** CUBA. 11810, March 22 at 1354, RHC is JBA but enough to match the mod with Spanish fundamental 11840 --- so this is a third-order x10 kHz spur, in addition to progressively stronger 11820 and 11830. I don`t get one on 11870, but yes on 11860 JBA vs equally JBA Yemen non. Something`s always wrong at RHC (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** EAST TURKISTAN. 5060, 4980, 4850, 4500, March 23 at 0040, equal JBA carriers on this quartet, which combination can only be the four domestic language services of PBS Xinjiang, Urumqi, along grayline. Our sunset: 0045; their sunrise: 0008 (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** JAPAN [non]. 15130, March 22 at 2052, poor S1-S2 YL in Japanese, something new? Hadn`t noticed before but HFCC shows NHK via FRANCE has been here all B-17 season, 1900-2100, 500 kW, 152 degrees from ISSoudun. And it`s still on the A-18 schedule (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 14322.5-USB, March 22 at 2054, not enough preachers on the SWBC bands, so here`s one on 20m; sounds like a broadcast rather than a contact, quoting a verse, and praying to a Christian god. QSX? It`s definitely not a 2-way contact except perhaps in his imagination, the supplication really a performance for those overhearing. 2055 he`s closing the ``International Bible Study Net`` as K1HV via remote AB1FF. I don`t copy the calls for sure until a real contact which follows with WA6ZMN/portable 5. K1HV is Jerry in Waverly TN; AB1FF remote transmitter is in Shirley MA.

Fuller details from ARRL lookups: K1HV: BULLOCK 216, JERRY A, K1HV, 101 BRIARWOOD DRIVE, PO Box: 37185, WAVERLY, TN 371853203. What`s with the 216 as part of his surname (3:16??). AB1FF: SEFRANEK, THOMAS C, AB1FF, 112 GREAT RD, SHIRLEY, MA 01464.

Found the website right away, and tsk2, obviously doubters and truly informed study with scholars are not welcome:

** U S A [and non]. WORLD OF RADIO 1922 monitoring: confirmed Thursday March 22 at 2230.5 on WRMI, 5850, fair and starting to lose out to daytime absorption, altho aimed NW right at us. We`ll see if it stay on the 51-meter band into summery A-18; 7570 would be preferable, abandoned along with Brother Scare. Also confirmed Thu Mar 22 at 2330 on WBCQ, 9330.3v-CUSB, fair. Next:

** U S A. 7490.041v-AM, UT Fri March 23 at 0116, like exactly one week ago, Blalock the Blaster is on WBCQ extension past nominal 0100* and still unshown on the program guide. Could be other nights too as I have not checked them all; in addition to 0000 on 9330v-CUSB (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 5085, March 22 at 1427, once again WTWW-2 is running 60m in the daytime, but not some Tedthing, rather gospel huxter sure sounds like Passà Pastor Pete Peters, but not // certainly him on 9475 WTWW-1. At 1434 analogy with dog food (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

** U S A. 1130, March 22 at 1703 UT check, KLEY Wellington KS still SNAFU with bits of modulated carrier cutting on and off at irregular intervals, while separate rapid regular noise pulses are also transmitted. Probably an emission which could not be accomplished if they tried to (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)

UNIDENTIFIED. 9690, March 23 at 0054, steady S9+20 open carrier; I keep a receiver on it and still going without modulation past 0234 when it`s down to S9 fading to S7. What could it be?

Spain could have forgotten to turn off its transmitter after 2300? But another less favorable Eurosig, CRI/Albania on 9570, is only S5-S7 at 0100. It`s much stronger than any of the three 31mb WRMIs. A bit stronger than 9640 RHC but at 0130 CRI/Cuba 9580 is S9+30; 9475 WTWW is S9+20; 9605 Korea/WHRI is about equal to 9690. Could also be a test from Greenville. Nothing around here listed in HFCC B-17 or A-18.

Reminiscent of a previous log two sesquimonths ago as in DXLD 17-52:
``UNIDENTIFIED. 9690, Dec 25 at 0041 past 0100, huge S9+35 open carrier, slight fades, in fact the SSOB, exceeding similar bigsigs from 9395 WRMI S9+30, 9455 S9+25. Seems must be intracontinental, VOA, WRMI or WHRI. At 0050, 9720 RHC is S9+25 but more fading. Surprisingly, CRI Albania 9570 is S9+25/10, while often it`s very weak, so could 9690 be European? Spain maybe left transmitter on after 2300? WRMI has used 9690 in the past too, and now plenty of spare transmitters`` (Glenn Hauser, OK, DX LISTENING DIGEST)
